Art + Designed Objects


Tasmania is famed for its vibrant creative arts community. Documenting their works is both challenging, stimulating, and work I very much enjoy.

I collaborate with and document the work of many leading Tasmanian artists, painters, ceramicists, sculptors, jewellers, furniture designers, fashion designers, glass makers, and public art practitioners.

Galleries include:

National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of NSW, Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery Bett Gallery, Handmark Gallery, Design Tasmania , Niagara Gallery, Beaver Galleries and of course MONA .
